Laurent Robinson is raising questions about his 2012 production after a poor preseason. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Jacksonville Jaguars spent big resources in the offseason to get help for QB Blaine Gabbert, using the No. 5 draft pick on Justin Blackmon and signing Laurent Robinson from the Cowboys for five years and $32 million. While Blackmon had an impressive preseason, Robinson was a big disappointment with only two catches for 25 yards. The Jags don't seem too worried, with offensive coordinator Bob Bratkowski admitting that getting Robinson targets wasn't a priority. "I'm trying to get certain plays run in game situations and not thinking about actually getting it to certain people.''

Fantasy Impact: Robinson was a breakout fantasy star last season, hauling in 11 TDs, 859 yards and 15.9 YPC, but he's highly doubtful to repeat those numbers in a run-first offense with Gabbert still a huge question mark, and is a prime candidate for heavy regression. Just because the Jags bought high on him doesn't mean fantasy owners have to.
